Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Rosy Akbar says they have been informed that some donors have offered Anita Singh some land and assistance to build her a home.
The 46-year-old woman lost her home in a fire last month and has been taking shelter in a wrecked vehicle that belongs to the owner of Turtle Tyre Services.
Akbar says the staff from the Department of Social Welfare have continued to visit her and have been working with her in finding accommodation. She says the fire relief assistance is also being processed for the woman.
Akbar says they are thankful to HART Homes for giving Singh a house in one of their facilities, however, she has gone back and forth about going to HART Homes and they have respected her final decision.
The Minister adds Singh has opted for assistance by donors to buy her land and build her a home.
Akbar says once they receive the official fire report, they will release the relief assistance which she can use for her immediate needs.
Singh is a social welfare recipient and receives $35 cash and a $50 food voucher monthly.
Singh thanked the Minister and her Ministry for visiting and assisting her.
